______ c o n d i t i o n

Dress displays minor evidence of time and wear. The collar has along slit in the fabric so I removed it and flipped it over. The tear was reinforced from the inside before reattaching the collar and is not visible when worn. Also near the collar is a handmade buttonhole not original to the dress. There is also a slash in the left sleeve that was fused from the inside to prevent further damage. Dress is otherwise structurally sound and presents beautifully!
